An archaeologist and an engineer unite to untangle mysteries hidden deep in the Nicaraguan rain forest in the thrilling science fiction adventure, Breakaway World (The Pathfinder) by Niles Keith. While building a road in the Nicaraguan jungle, a couple of workers stumble on an ancient monolith hundreds of miles away from the nearest Mayan ruins. Because of its location, the statue is an enigma. Dr. Rachel Reisinger, the foremost specialist in Mayan culture, flies in to research the anomaly. At the same time, Arnon LeBlanc is on a secret assignment for the CIA to scope out Anomalous Aerial Vehicles. A Chinese communist group and a Colombian drug lord already contending about antiquities in the region are interested in the newest discovery. Although their reasons differ, Rachel's and Arnon's presence are a threat to both factions. Since Rachel's quest for an ancient road is in the same vicinity as his search for AAVs, Arnon takes the job as her bodyguard and combines the two assignments. While Rachel and Arnon each seek evidence to support their own theories, their unperceived enemies plan their demise.
Breakaway World (The Pathfinder) by Niles Keith is a breathtaking and extraordinary adventure story. With an exotic setting, a courageous hero, and science fiction elements, the story is comparable to novels written by James Rollins and Michael Crichton. It is skillfully written and embodies the essentials of a best seller. Footnotes are an added and welcome bonus as they are enlightening and enhance the realism of the storyline. The only downside I could find is the story is open-ended. It concludes on a cliffhanger and left me expecting a sequel. Indiana Jones fans who enjoy action-packed adventures built on legends and myths will not want to miss this!
